For an appetizer, we ordered the Carrots 3 Ways, which has carrots pureed into a cream, carrots roasted and a carrot bark. This was an amazing dish, beautiful to look at, tasty and very creative. Too often, the vegan dishes on restaurant menus are simple to make but often involve little imagination. It's been a couple weeks since we had this dish, and we still are reflecting on its creativity. It's great when a top chef applies his or her talents fully on vegan dishes!
For entrees, we had the portobello entree, which included smoked cauliflower, asparagus, ramps (a wild onion) and Romesco (a nut and pepper based sauce). We also ordered the Summer Vegetable Tacos, which had mushrooms, baby squash and hummus. The portabello entree and the appetizer were labeled Vegan Friendly (which translates into Vegan), though the tacos required a slight modification. The server was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
For dessert, they offered a mango sorbet, which was divine, creamy and rich in mango flavor. They rotate the sorbet flavors and so we look forward to trying what they have next time.
This is a fine dining experience. They have a great cocktail and wine list and an excellent wait staff who knew just when to stop by and when to leave us alone. We went there early and were able to get a window view that looked out over the Maumee river – another nice touch. We really enjoyed our experience here. The food was delicious and creative. We can't wait to return!
